Thanks for helping us to continue to support the HALO Trust. We appreciate many of you have donated to this cause before!
The HALO Trust works to remove explosive remnants of war that continue to impact the lives of the poorest people in some of the world's most deprived places. It does this to prevent injury and death (with the majority of victims being young children) and to provide access to previously contaminated land for local people to: build houses; improve livelihoods; and regenerate infrastructure and services.
HALO is an incredibly lean organisation, keeping the number of expatriates to a minimum and focusing on building the capacity of national staff who have a keen understanding of priority and local cultural and conflict dynamics. In doing so, HALO minimises staff costs and overheads, and maximises the impact of every pound donated. I had the privilege of working for this organisation and can personally attest to the importance of continuing to support its efforts, particularly as it moves to tackle the consequences of new and currently active conflicts such as in Libya.
